Depending upon where you live in MD may not want to wrap in Saran wrap or plastic bags due to humidity. Lot depends upon moisture content below 18 to 20% little chance of mold growth above twenty may see some mold growth. For most humid areas in the country wood could be between and 11 to 13% mositure content and safe to turn.

Lived in Charles county (indian Head) for awhile and familiar with humidity there still not as bad as where live now.

With exception of various species of Cherry wood which had lot success turning. My self and other turners leery of other fruit woods due them cracking & splitting just looking at them. If end seal and store out of the wheater & direct sun light natural air circulation will get you to EMC.

Being that log has been sitting around for two years I would just go for it and turn whatever had in mind and hope for the best.
